Inspired by the vintage record postcards that were sold in the 60ies and 70ies, we redeveloped the idea of this format. Back then, the cards used to be manufactured with a hot-foiling process, resulting in weak sound performance, short durability and cheap feel. Something that is great as a gimmick but never convinced as a valuable product.
